  • I didn’t know that lifesavers candy would create sparks when broke up.

  • Hahah I remember Tang. My father’s old restaurant was next door to the Tang factory and we used to serve a lot of those guys. Crazy seeing 100 foot tanks of orange powder.

  • Just think if Mars hadn’t have gotten bought out with the M&Ms, how much that would be worth today! 🙂
